With the Cubs kicking off another season at Wrigley Field earlier this week with their home opener, a lot has been made of the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field.  While the lovable losers never brought a championship to Wrigley Field, the Bears brought plenty of titles to Chicago while they were tenants at Clark and Addison.

The Bears won eight of their nine championships while Wrigley Field was their home.  The played 330 games there with a record of 221-89-22, including two games as the visitors.  George “Papa Bear” Halas struck a deal with Cubs’ president William Veck Sr in 1921, when Halas move the then Staleys from Decatur to Chicago.   The Bears kept their home at Wrigley from 1921 to 1970.
